It might be hard to think of a reason to escape such perfect weather in the Dallas area, but alas, this is a resort escape you may want to consider for your next getaway. The Anantara Bophut Koh Samui Resort and Spa has some of the most breath-taking views of Thailand. The trip from Dallas to Thailand is about 20-23 hours, depending on the flight and how much you want to spend. A round trip flight in November using Kayak.com can be about $700. Rooms can be about $130 or more a night depending on when you book or take advantage of promotions. Here’s a snippet from the resort website:

Dine on fiery Thai curries and char grill cuisine overlooking the ocean.
